    Congratulations on your new nonprofit. I heard about you during the Odyssey, I would love to volunteer. How can I get involved? I would also love more information on native bees in the area. Such as are they currently in decline or being affected like the honey bees? If so are there any steps we can take to help support them.
    Thank you!
